after my grad trip, i realised skincare in HK is really CHEAP!!!! im gg to record down the prices so i wont make the same mistake again!
im q sure i wil bcome those who wil fly to HK over the wkend and stay over @ AY’s hse if she managed to get a place in the uni there lol.
Tip1: Get ur skincare @ sasa, and make up @ counter in dep stores like times Square & sogo, both at causeway bay. look out for the anniversary sales @ dep stores, it will make a big diff!! sogo’s on 26th may this yr.
Sasa usually sell skincare only, and its at least 10% cheaper than those @ dep stores. So chk sasa 1st b4 heading dep stores. Skincare @ SASA is definitely Cheaper than SG
Sasa has clinique, laneige (limited), h20+ (limited), biotherm, clarins, shu uemura (Uv base can be found there). there is a 2lvl Sasa at mongkok 西洋菜街, behind 女人街, DHC, laneige & loccitane can be found at this street.. SAsa do not haf anna sui, paul & joe, loccitane, chanel, jill stuart.
i cant really rmb the prices but i noe laneige slping pack EX is HK150 (HK190 in laneige shop), shu uemura UV base is less than HK300.
